COVINGTON - The field of 11 Covington city commissioner candidates was narrowed to eight Tuesday, with three of the incumbents advancing. The top four finishers in the November election will serve two-year terms.
Commissioners Jerry Bamberger, Alex Edmondson and Bernie Moorman finished first, second and fourth, respectively. Commissioner Craig Bohman is not seeking re-election.
Bamberger finished with 15 percent of the vote from the 27 precincts. Edmondson finished with 14.4 percent, while newcomer Jerry Stricker finished third with 13.8 percent. Moorman finished with nearly 13 percent, just 11 votes ahead of Rob Sanders.
Neil Blunt, Thomas Schadler and Jeff Sewell rounded out the top eight. Hensley Jemmott, Jimmy Williams and Jonathan Thurman were eliminated.
Edmondson was at the Kenton County courthouse to get results Tuesday. He said the totals show voters are happy with what the commission has done, but it will be a tough fight in November.
